Extending eviction ban nothing more than kicking the can down the road

Responding to reports that the eviction ban in England will be extended until 20 September, Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran said: “No-one should face losing their homes while this deadly virus still hasn’t been properly brought under control.

“Extending the eviction ban by just a mere month is nothing more than kicking the can down the road. It is a dereliction of duty.

“For families who have been days away from the threat of eviction, this news will go down like a bucket of cold sick.

“The Government must get real on renters right and immediately ease worries by extending the ban until there is a proper long-term solution for people who have found themselves in crisis.”
